A new life

Did you know that the raw materials from 13 batteries are enough to manufacture a spectacle frame? And that it takes 120 to make a watering can? Bebat brings new life to every used battery by extracting the metals and other resources for reuse.

Zinc and steel for a watering can, tricycle or a wheelbarrow. Nickel, carbon, steel, titanium, cobalt, lead and plastics for a pair of spectacles, an alarm clock or a cooking pot etc.
